"We have a 94 with 145,000 miles. The car was purchased in 98 with 40,000 miles and has been virtually trouble free until now. It has run great and we have made several out of town trips..but now the bad part - The valve cover gaskets started leaking and it costs $1500 to fix. The main vacuum hose costs $400 to replace. A lot of the parts have to be bought from the dealer. The leather is shot. The struts and shocks need replacing. The rear window motors are gone. This is a great car until it gets old and needs repairs. Unless you want one for sentimental reasons, I would stay away from an old one. Don't buy one if it has over 70,000 miles."

"The Good - Beautiful styling, easy to handle, powerful engine, smooth transmission reliable. A wonderful car to own, if you don't mind repairs here and there. Did I mention its a beautiful car? The bad - Old. replacing parts adds up after a while. Electronics system has weaknesses, plan to have to debug at some point. We bought a 93 with 120,000 in 2001 and in 2008 watched as they towed it away after it quit on the freeway and now there is no compression, or desire to keep it going any longer. When we bought it, it had some problems, the window mech had been broken & was put together with a coat hanger so we fixed it. Other problems were related to electronics, we had to replace speakers and a cd changer which later had to be repared, we also repaired a few other "circuit boards" (very basic, huge components, mostly easy to repare. biggest problem was old flux because they didnt clean up very well after assembly) One of the greatest saving fetaures of this car was the aux input for the stereo, my ipod was eventually the only audio I had because the antenna motor broke. all but the drivers window mechs broke. The sunroof mech and or motor also broke. The seats were in great shape and very comfortable & adjustable. The door levers are very cheesy & the chrome plating over plastic chipped on all of then leaving sharp edges to grab your hands. The door handles broke & door panel clips are cheesy. Replacement parts are fairly easy to get, e-bay was a good source & the internet had lots of resources. Some things were just too expensive to replace. I enjoyed this car, I wish I had purchased one at 50,000 miles."

"I bought this car going on a year ago with 120000 miles on it. it is the worst car i have ever owned. The sunroof wont open anymore, only one window will roll down where the other three window's switch has shorted out. The engine ticks badly. It has been taken care of but is still crummy. also heater and air has completely burned out. the interior is horrible. inside panels on doors are falling off, bottom of dash board has fallen off, and the rest of my dash is fallin apart."
